Alpine, California (February 14, 2020) – A pedestrian was seriously injured on Thursday afternoon after an auto-pedestrian crash in Alpine.
The crash occurred on westbound 8 Freeway at Willows Road.
According to the police, the pedestrian was, for unknown reasons, hit by a car at about 1:30 p.m., on February 13. The make and the model of the vehicle involved were not known.

“A person on foot is no match for a large, multi-ton vehicle. Pedestrians have virtually no protection when they are hit by cars, motorcycles, trucks, and other vehicles” Managing Partner and CEO Alpine Law Group, Mr. Arin Khodaverdian, believes. “Sadly, this often leads to catastrophic injuries including temporary or lifelong disability, severe disfigurement, severe physical and emotional pain, and/or death.” He adds.
Mr. Khodaverdian has worked for many years as a wrongful death and personal injury attorney. He and his team of attorneys have helped thousands of injury victims and their families recover over $100 million in compensation. “In one case, we recovered a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim who was killed by a negligent driver.”
Swift action by an experienced attorney helps preserve evidence, interview witnesses, and begin to pursue those responsible for the incident.
